From the Editor’s Desk
A warm welcome to the readers of The Bloom Magazine.
It’s a Saturday evening. The room is full of aspiring children loaded with
energy. A taekwondo class in progress - I must say the shout ‘kihap’ (kee-yah-
p) is reverberating across the room. A shout that translates to a spirited yell -
a result of gathering and focussing one’s energy. Can one randomly shout
‘kihap’? No, there is a structure to it. Who’s structuring it? That, of course, is
the taekwondo instructor. It’s simple. It’s an instruction to be followed and
followed to the T.
That said, we as individuals, should consider understanding the importance of
following an instruction – whether one is at home or at school, in a classroom,
the games field, the library or even in the canteen. Instructions give us clarity
to create, learn, grow and become better for our world.
I came across this story about Leonardo da Vinci who is known for some of the
world’s most beautiful artwork. He is also known for his spontaneous
inventions and creative ideas. When he was given the task of painting ‘The
Last Supper’, on a special type of plaster that made oil paint dry quickly, he
chose to do his own thing. He took all the time in the world and created his
own plaster for the painting. Unfortunately, the plaster he created repelled the
paint and the mural began peeling. Until this day, the mural is still peeling.
What do we understand from this? It’s good to be creative but also important
to follow instructions. It’s imperative for us to keep our eyes and ears open.
This, of course, requires humility and good listening skills.
To sum it up, to build and cater to social and emotional development –
following instructions is of utmost importance. Youngsters are naturally
active and exuberant; the key perhaps lies in learning when it is appropriate
to show it. The key lies in imparting training with the correct set of
instructions, to focus and streamline the exhibition of their unique talents and
skills in an acceptable form.
In line with this thought about following instructions, the efforts of the
students and the class teacher of Class I B and students and English Teacher of
Class VI have to be appreciated for their enthusiastic and timely contribution
to the magazine either in the form of artwork, articles, poems or calligraphy
inserts. It can be noted that the pristine quality of the Class I articles have
been maintained [without any correction or editing] to give due respect to
their age and talent.
A word of appreciation is also due to the parents for their overwhelming and
timely response and for contributing interesting and informative articles
relevant to the current generation.
A special word of thanks to Mrs. Akhila Sankarbandi for her meticulous and
tireless efforts in creating a fluid reading experience of the magazine.
I also thank the Management, Principal, Headmaster, CCA co-ordinator,
teachers, parents and all the other students for their contribution to The

We believe our role as educators is to guide and nurture the next generation to
establish skills to achieve their goals. We are passionate about students being
empowered to succeed. We use all tools available to inspire staff, students and
community to work together to promote student achievement and well-being.
We are avid supporters of effective and innovative professional development
that encourages teachers and principals to be reflective and to continuously
examine their practice to provide quality teaching and learning for each
student. We engage ourselves to keep up with latest trends and be an active
partner in the school's professional development.
The ability to be innovative and creative is important to us. We enjoy being
challenged and inspired by the people around us. We always challenge our
staff and students to be inventive and imaginative in their learning and day to

essential to a school's success. To borrow John Hattie's words: "Teachers

We enjoy celebrating successes and acknowledge the hard work of staff,
students and community and believe this is one of the main contributing
factors to a happy school environment. All staff, students and community feel
valued and appreciated at school.
Community engagement and involvement is what we will be our focus in the
future. We want our students to be successful not just in classrooms but in life
too. By engaging them in community initiatives, we want our students to
experience the real life impact they can make and develop a richer perspective
of the world they live in.
We urge you all to get involved in community service during your summer
break and make a difference in the lives of people. Some of the initiatives that
you could be engaged in are issues related to environment, animal shelters,
old age homes, deaf, dumb and blind schools, orphanages, NGO's etc. By
volunteering you will be learning life skills which will go a long way in
preparing you for real life situations. When we come back after the vacations
we would love to hear about your experiences and see how we can take your
initiatives forward. Looking forward to hearing your exciting experiences
when you come back.
"No act of kindness is ever wasted" – Aesop
Mrs. Madhuri Chengappa – Secretary
Daffodils English School
You have probably heard the quote from Mahatma Gandhi saying, “Live
simply so that others may simply live”. Personally, I strongly advocate this
quote. Instead of spending our leisure time, money and aptitude on fulfilling
our selfish gains, why don’t we live in a way that allows us to give our
excessive gifts to others who need them more than we do? I’d love to imagine
a world where all of us can live with this mindset. Then this world would be
one with much more peace, love and joy.
Most of us get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, we end up
forgetting that just being alive is a gift that must not be taken for granted. In
this competitive world, where happiness is measured by money, success and
other materialistic things, we give more priority to buying expensive things
than just sparing some change for the needy.
Maybe we donate a lot of our time and treasure to organisations in need but
still find ourselves swimming in material items and unimportant success or
reputation. We don’t need the material things of the world in order to live a
life of happiness. Look at the people who have changed history, most of them
Let’s take a look at the above quote in the current global context. Climate
change is taking its toll on the earth in ways that we could not even have
imagined. Unprecedented rain, fire, wind, heat and cold are wiping out
species to the brink of extinction and we are in the path of destruction.
ITS JUST A MATTER OF TIME. We are all doomed if the world continues
with business as usual, along with their hi-tech lives and polluting lifestyles,
with no regard for the environment.
We will be looked at as that generation which could have ended this
pandemic, but instead chose its comfy lifestyles and behaviour. We need to
change our mind-set and lifestyles and become more sustainable by reducing
single-use plastic, using public transportation, conserving water, or simply
Yes, it is exciting to buy new, fun things for ourselves. But imagine how much
fuller life would be if we cared a little less about the outward appearance of
our lives and a little more about taking care of our souls. Let us all in our
own little ways live simply so that our future generations can simply live.

Wow! How Cool!
Being Cool is the mantra of our teenagers. Being regarded as a cool dude is
the in-thing or in vogue. It is not wrong to be cool. However, there is a thin
line between being cool and pretending to be cool. Being cool is to show to the
world you are unique or to outstand your peers.
Before we get any further, however, you might want to reflect on what you
think contributes to the quality of being cool. Who are the cool people in your
own life? Is it the friend who just always seems to have control over his
emotions, regardless of how dire a situation may be? Is it a classmate whose
every post on social media is liked by tens, if not hundreds, of followers? It
might even be a celebrity whose claim to fame is a distinctive and enviable
one. As much as you’d like to be like them, you feel it is just not within you to
be that admirable individual with all that apparent popularity, and perhaps
even a smug sense of self-satisfaction. However, coolness isn't an absolute
quality. What’s cool now may not have been cool even a few years ago. For
example, it’s cool to stand out on social media, but it’s also cool to be a
member of nerd culture. This further complicates the situation because you
can’t put a definite finger on the coolness quotient, as it applies to those near
and far from your social circles.
In yester years, learning the lyrics of Elton John, Michael Jackson, George
Michael, Madonna was the coolest thing one could do as a teenager. Learning
a regional or any other language song was not happening. But now singing a
Karaoke of any language is a cool thing.
Wearing only branded clothes and marking a difference on an ethnic day by
wearing dhoti, a saree or a lehenga is a cool thing. Addressing everyone as
‘bro’ without any gender disparity is the hep quotient or the coolest thing.
Watching Mahabharata with family members was a transition from black and
white to colour television; from Doordarshan to private channels for the
adults who belonged to the 1990s. It isn’t watching a soap opera on
television, but watching a Netflix original or series that is cool. Going on a
trek with a friend, or biking, is cool.
With all these, the main difference between being cool and pretending to be
cool focusses on the approaches that lead you to be perceived as cool or the
qualities that you project for others to see you as cool.
1. The first is “cachet coolness,” or the socially desirable traits of being
friendly, agreeable, and competent.
2. Directly opposed to these traits are those that fit into the category
of “contrarian coolness,” or the tendency to be detached, rebellious, and a bit
rough around the edges.
It can be put under two categories
Being cool: caring, ambitious, warm, friendly, attractive, charismatic,
confident, and trendy.
Pretending to be cool (most of the time): being rebellious, sarcastic,
aggressive, detached, adventurous and selfish.
It is observed by the educators and the psychologists that being cool is a
positive attribute. However, pretending to be cool is alarming as the children
or students falling under this category are left behind in all aspects and can
never make a mark for themselves in life.
It is left to you students to be cool or to pretend to be!
Be what you are, do not pretend, do not have different faces instead be
yourself and always down to earth.

Although a cliché, the emotional wellbeing of our children is just as important
as their physical health. Good mental health allows children and young people
to develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow
into well-rounded, healthy adults.
A few years ago, the World Health Organization (WHO) had predicted that 20
per cent of India's population will suffer from some form of mental illness by
2020! And 2020 is here!!
Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people. They
are often a direct response to what is happening in their lives. Surveys
suggest that more children and young people have problems with their mental
health today, than 30 years ago. That’s probably because of changes in the way
we live now and how that affects the experience of growing up.
Early life adversity is a major risk factor for the development of psychological
and behavioural problems later in life.
Higher rates of depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder
and aggressive behaviour have been reported in adultswho experienced
But not all children who experience early life stress go on to develop mental
illness. It seems, how we cope with stressful experiences is not only
influenced by your prior experiences, but also our genes, coping responses
and brain regulation. Chemicals in the brain such as cortisol and oxytocin
are important for stress and emotional regulation.
Things that can help keep children and young people mentally well include:
Being in good physical health, eating a balanced diet and getting regular
Having time and the freedom to play - indoors and outdoors.
Being part of a family that demonstrates affection and gets along well,
most of the time.
Going to a school that looks after the wellbeing of all its pupils.
Taking part or volunteering in local activities for young people.
Feeling loved, trusted, understood, valued and safe.
Being interested in life and having opportunities to enjoy themselves.
Being hopeful and optimistic.
Being able to learn and having opportunities to succeed.
Accepting who they are and recognizing what they are good at.
Having a sense of belonging in their family, school and community.
Feeling they have some control over their own life.
Having the strength to cope when something is wrong (resilience) and the
ability to solve problems.
Who are at Risk?
Having a long-term physical illness.
Having a parent who has had mental health problems, problems with

What help is available?
Daffodils English School is equipped with a trained and qualified Counsellor.
The support and services of the counsellor is available not only for the
students, but also available for the parent community. The professional,
supporting your child, will keep information about your child and your family
confidential. Students can seek help on their own, or in consultation with
their teachers or Principal. Parental consent is usually needed for them to get
medical care if they are under 18 years of age.
Besides a school counsellor, we also have trained teachers who take immense
interest in the emotional wellbeing of the students. Teachers undergo periodic
training to enhance their skills at handling students
Parental support is of utmost importance to children. If they have a warm,
open relationship with their parents, children will usually be able to tell them
if they are troubled. One of the most important ways parents can help is to
listen to them and take their feelings seriously.
Your unconditional acceptance of your child, will be of great help in your
child’s emotional wellbeing. They may want a hug, they may want you to help
them change something or they may want practical help. Be available!
Children and young people’s negative feelings usually pass. However, it’s a
good idea to get help if your child is distressed for a long time, if their
negative feelings are stopping them from getting on with their lives, if their
distress is disrupting family life or if they are repeatedly behaving in ways you
would not expect at their age.
Young people have a right to privacy. So, if they do not want to talk to you
about their conversations with the counsellor, you should still respond
sensitively and get in touch with the counsellor. Whether an illness affects the
heart, the leg or the brain, it is still an illness and there should be no
distinction. So, let us, in this New Year, pledge to make mental wellbeing our
priority for ourselves and our children!

When body parts are used as verbs:
You can head a company, but if things go wrong you’ll have to shoulder the
blame or face your investors.
A good leader will back his employees, but if you don’t toe the line, the
management can skin you alive.
You might eye someone suspiciously, or wait for the police to finger a suspect.
If you need to get out of town, you can thumb a ride or you can ride with me if
you can stomach the thought.
Use strong arm tactics if you want to elbow out someone.
I don’t always sing along with the radio but mouth the words.
The Tangy Noodles
I was mixing some wheat flour,
Which was left in the store,
To make some tasty noodles,
For me and my poodles.
I moulded the flour into small thin strips,
Like my grand mom makes when we go on trips,
I cut and boiled the carrot and beans,
And added some herbs and greens.
Seeing the dish I was all toothy,
It was a perfect combo with a smoothie,
All set for a party,
And everyone called me a smarty!

Life is an Examination
Why only exams? If we look at it from the right point of view, our whole life is
an exam. Man is happy when he confronts challenges. If all challenges end,
and there is nothing to worry about, even then he will create challenges, even
if it is only for fun.
Stephen Duneier: A Marginal Improvement
Stephen Duneier is an American
manager, strategy consultant,
lecturer, author, artist and
Guinness World Record holder.
He is the C.E.O of Bija Advisors.
What sets his company and his
attitude apart is his stress on
decision making and breaking
down big tasks. A few months
ago, I happened to watch a talk
of his on TEDx that gave me a
He starts off by saying that as a
student he couldn’t score very
well because he was unable to sit and study for more than five to ten minutes.
After a point in time he started becoming an active part of his own decision
making. Instead of trying to focus for more than ten minutes, he assumed he
couldn’t read for more than five to ten minutes and broke his studies into
small parts of five to ten minutes of reading. I figured out that he went on
according to his being able to focus, for the time he could. He goes on with
many more examples in his life to show that this actually worked. He says
that all that he did was make a marginal improvement in his decisions. He
found the classic case of the New Year’s weight loss resolution. Rather than
paying for a gym he would never go to, he took to his hobby of hiking and
instead made a New Year’s resolution of hiking thirty trails. He used what he
loved doing as a way of accomplishing his goal.
His talk is brilliant and can be found on YouTube and is very inspirational.

Sanskrit- Mother Of Many Languages
We live in a diverse world, where people follow various traditions, customs,
food habits and speak various languages. Every language has its own
speciality, and might have borrowed a few words from other languages too.
It’s common knowledge for us, Indians, that SANSKRIT is the ‘mother of
almost all the regional languages of India’. Surprisingly, even languages
spoken abroad, including the widely spoken language - English, owe many
words to Sanskrit! So, here are a few words in English, which have directly or
indirectly, originated from Sanskrit.

My mother says;
I was cute when I was small,
I was stout and not too tall.
My favourite place was the mall,
I loved playing with the ball.
My father says;
He would pamper me all day and night,
He would try to make my mind bright,
With my sister, I would not fight.
I would always cry and not be quiet.
And I say;
I don’t remember how I was when I was small.
I was stout then, but now I’m tall,
I don’t know how I will be in future,
But still my name means the beautiful nature..!

Voyager en France/ Travelling in France
Les Français utilisent beaucoup leur voiture. Le réseau des routes et des
autoroutes est très important. La SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer
Français) organise les voyages en train. On prend le TER (Train Express
Régional), le RER (Réseau Express de la Région parisienne) ou le TGV (Train à
Grand Vitesse). Pour aller d’une ville à un village, on prend le car. Dans chaque
grande ville, il y a un aéroport. Air France, des compagnies européennes comme
British Airways, Lufthansa, etc… organise les voyages de l’air à villes
international comme Londres, Frankfurt, Bengaluru, etc… ou les autres villes
de France comme Toulouse, Marseille de trois Aéroports de Paris qui sont Paris-
Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Beauvais Tillé et Paris-Le Bourget. Dans Paris, on peut
prendre le métro, le bus (RAPT), ou le tramway dans certains quartiers. Dans
toutes les autres villes, on utilise le bus ou le tramway à Montpellier, à
Strasbourg, à Lille, etc… Et bien sûr on peut prendre un taxi aussi.
The French depend on their car a lot. The network of roads and highways is very
important. The SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français) organises
travel by rail, that is, by train. One takes the TER (Train Express Régional), the
RER (Réseau Express de la Région parisienne) or the TGV (Train à Grand Vitesse)
for long distance travel. To go from a city to a village, one takes the car. In each
big city there is an airport. Air France, some other European companies like,
British Airways, Lufthansa and many more… organise air travel to international
cities like London, Frankfurt, Bengaluru and many more… or other cities in
France like Marseille Toulouse, and others… from the three airports of Paris
which are Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris- Beauvais Tillé and Paris-Le Bourget. In
Paris, one can take the metro, the taxi, the bus (RAPT) or the tramway in certain
areas. In all other cities, one uses the bus or the tramway at Montpellier, at
Strasbourg, at Lille, and many more… And of course, one can also take the taxi.
De, Aditya Pattavardhanam, 9-C
All of us have different interests in life. A while ago I came across Greek
mythology while I was reading some novels. I found it very interesting. Here is
some information and a short story from Greek Mythology.
Zeus - The Greek God of the sky and anything Hera - The Greek Goddess of marriage, Zeus’s
related to it like rain and lightning. He is wife and sister. Roman form: Juno
the king of the Gods. Roman form: Jupiter
Poseidon - The Greek God of the sea; Zeus Hades - The Greek God of the underworld
and Hade’s brother. Roman form: Nep- and the ruler of the dead. Roman form:
Demeter - The Greek Goddess of agriculture. Aphrodite - The Greek Goddess of love and
Roman form: Ceres beauty. Roman form: Venus
Hephaetus - The Greek God of fire, crafts and Ares - The Greek God of war; half-brother to
blacksmiths. Roman form: Vulcan Athena. Roman form: Mars
Artemis - The Greek Goddess of the hunt and Apollo - The Greek God of the sun, prophecy,
the moon; twin of Apollo. Roman form: music and healing; twin of Artemis. Ro-
Diana man form: Apollo. (He didn’t change his
form while he was Roman)
Hermes - The Greek God of travellers, com- Dionysius: The Greek God of wine. Roman
munication and thieves. Roman form: form: Bacchus
How did these Gods come into existence?
In the beginning, there was no life. This is what the Greeks thought had
happened. At first, there was nothing except this God called Chaos. He was a
gloomy, soupy mist with all the matter in the cosmos just drifting around him.
He eventually got bored. Some of his matter was collected and made into a
living personality who was called Gaia, the Earth mother. She was literally the
Earth. She could also take on human form.
Eventually she too got bored. She wished there was a sky and that, the sky like
her, could take on human form and would become a handsome man. Either
Chaos cooperated or Gaia willed it to happen. The sky was called Uranus.
You should guess what happened next. Uranus and Gaia fell in love. They gave
birth to a set of kids called Titans. These Titans overthrew their father who was
the king of the cosmos. The Titan called Kronos got the throne and became King.
Kronos was evil and did not want an heir as he did not want to pass down the
throne and so ate all his children when they were babies.
He being immortal, the children stayed alive in his tummy. The Titans were
gigantic, hence the children were able to live inside their father’s stomach and
survived. Once one of Krono’s sons, Zeus was hidden by his mother. After he
grew up, he attacked Kronos and saved all his siblings. Hence came the God of
Olympus (the Gods mentioned above). This is how the Olympians came into
existence and Zeus who saved all his siblings became the King of the Greek Gods
known as the Olympians.

A Wise Man
There lived a wise man in a certain village. People often went to him with their
problems or complaints. One day he told them a joke and the people around him
laughed heartily. After a couple of minutes, he told them the same joke, only a
few of them laughed.
When he repeated the joke for the third time, only two of them laughed and in
the fourth attempt nobody laughed.
The wise man smiled and said, “When you cannot laugh at the same joke over
and over again, why do you cry and worry over the same problem?”
Moral: Worrying won’t solve your problems, it will waste your time and energy.

How unsympathetic is this world?
A world, where they make promises to stay forever, but all that is left is a shell
of a man you once used to be. How barbaric is this world?
A world, where the same touch that made you see the colours and the light, now
leaves you in utter despair, disgust and darkness. They say that, "with pain
comes strength." And they completely neglect the suicidal thoughts, the agony
and the hate that comes with it too. I have a whole new level of respect for
people who have overcome all these entities and are breathing fresh even after
all the suffering and the torment.
Even when it hurts, I want to keep going.
Even when it hurts, I HAVE to keep going.
Simply because this is not the end. This is not all my life was meant to be.
And now, where ever life takes me, I'll have a huge load of setbacks. And when I
look back into the past, these setbacks may sometimes get me upset. But we all
must learn that setbacks are just a part of life, we can run, walk, crawl gingerly
to get to our goal. It doesn't matter how we get there as long as we GET THERE.

De-Extinction – now, a reality!
Have you ever thought of resurrecting the dead or ever pondered over the
idea of bringing something back to life? Well, you will be surprised to know
that it is now a reality in science known as ‘Resurrection Biology’ or
De-extinction, which is quite the art of creating an organism which belongs to
or resembles an extinct species through complex scientific methods known as
Although not very commonly used methods, scientists have narrowed species
revivalism down to three methods known as cloning, genome editing and
selective breeding. Some fun facts about these methods: -
Genome editing uses cells from a species closely related to the extinct species
to bring a hybrid of a current day descendent and an ancient ancestor. Talk
about a whole new addition to the family!
The white throated Rail, a flightless bird that disappeared 136,000 years ago
reappeared 36,000 years later. People called it magic; scientists call it
re-evolution due to change in sea levels that favoured their breeding. This is
called iterative evolution.
The Gala Pagos Tortoise was brought back to life using selective breeding
Some current projects for de-extinction are:
-Woolly mammoth – Thylacine – Pyrenean Ibex
-Aurochs – Passenger pigeon – Quagga

A Perspective on the Indian Economy
[Excerpts from an interview of Ms.Gita Gopinath – Chief Economist – IMF]
The Indian economy which is witnessing one of the worst slowdowns in the
recent years requires some more reforms such as improving its financial
system and streamlining of goods and services tax system.
If you look at India’s gross domestic product (GDP) and the investments- there
has been the farm sector where rural income growth has slowed and that has
had other negative impacts on the private sector demand. These factors
including the weakness in the auto sector have contributed to the slowing of
the Indian economy.
With the emerging markets, the cyclical nature and the structural nature tend
to move very closely together because usually the countries are undertaking
the structural reforms at the same time as the economy is growing. So it is very
difficult to tell apart whether it is cyclical or structural in nature. That said,
some of this is cyclical because we expect the growth to come back to higher
levels than they were in 2019. Some part of it is also structural because when
you have a prolonged period of weak investment, that means there is the lower
capital stock going forward or the increase in the capital stock is not as much,
which adds the structural aspect to it.
There is a combination of both measures that are being undertaken. So if we
look at the corporate tax cut, we could look at it as supply side reform. On the
other hand, the income transfers to the rural areas is very much a demand
stimulus being done. The government needs to bear in mind that there is not
much fiscal space to play with. To get India to be a major manufacturing
centre, I think a couple of reforms need to take place- which is on labour and
land, in terms of easy land acquisitions. Also there needs to be much more
infrastructure built so as to become a big part of the global supply chain - the
distance between ports and factories has to be reduced. A lot more needs to be
done for India to realise the dream of becoming a manufacturing hub.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has done quite a bit in terms of regulations, it
has been vigilant about the developments that have been taking place recently.
But what is also needed is a faster resolution of some of the legacy issues in the
banking system, like non performing assets (NPA).
National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) was set-up for this purpose, but it has
taken longer than that was stipulated by the law.
It was expected with the global supply chain shifting that other countries
would be beneficiaries of it. I don’t think people immediately assume that India
would step in because they are aware of the fact that there is still an
infrastructure deficit in India. Nobody expected that to change dramatically.
India is not a major part of the global supply chain and it is certainly an
opportunity for India to step into that space.

Mathematics The Sublime Terror
How happy are algorithm The sublime terror,
combinatorics It’s a horror.
Are you upset by how heuristic they The seas that bring the sublime terror,
are? Are not so minor.
Does it tear you apart to see the The sublime terror,
Combinatorics so recursive? Is like a mirror,
I saw the geometrical pure Which sees us behind a caretaker.
Of my generation destroyed, The sublime terror,
How I mourned the algebra. Is not fairer,
Are you upset by how geometric it is? Who can show such terror.
Does it tear you apart to see the The sublime terror,
Algebra so non-representational? Has no wearer,
But is a large error.
Don’t believe the calculation is small? [It is a mirror with an error
The calculation is big beyond belief. conducting horror.]
Up to the brightness of calculation,
Gently it goes – the adult, the outsize, Perfect!
the overlarge. When things come undone,
And they don’t fall in line,
How happy are the students! Then stitch in time,
Do students make you happy? Saves nine!
Do they? In this world it is
Gold!!! These things you should not neglect.
Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold! The only way is to
Bright and yellow, hard and cold, Be pre-planned and perfect!
Molten, graven, hammered and rolled;
Hard to get and light to hold, Don’t say things are preposterous,
Hoarded, bartered, squandered, doled; Just because they are arduous.
Spurned by young, but hung by old It’s the bright side you should turn,
To the verge of church yard mold; And make sure the work’s done.
Price of many a crime untold So, it’s a suspicious way to select,
Gold! Gold! Gold! Gold! And always be perfect.
Good or bad a thousand fold!
How widely its agencies vary, Well, things don’t come for free,
To save – to ruin –to curse – to bless – Not even the fruits from a tree;
As ever its minted coins express; It’s the time you should never reject,
Now stamped with the image of Queen And as usual be perfect.
Bess, Class 8-A-Team ‘B’

Change is a universal phenomenon. In the past ten years, so many
developments have taken place in the Indian economy, especially after Shri
Narendra Modi became India’s Prime Minister.
Whenever PM Modi starts his speech by saying, “Mere pyare deshvaasiyo!”, all
Indians stop their work and open up their ears to listen to what he will address
us . This was one such experience during 2016’s November.
Amazingly, on the 8th of November in the same year it was announced that
there was going to be demonetization in India. What is demonitization?
Demonetization is the act of stripping a currency unit of its status as legal
tender. The current forms of money is pulled from circulation and retired, often
to be replaced with new notes or coins.
According to a 2018 report from the RBI, approximately 99.3% of the
demonitized banknotes, or ₹15.30lakh crore (15.3 trillion) of the ₹15.41 lakh
crore that had been demonitized was deposited with the banking system. For a
number of months, businesses were hit and over a million people lost their jobs.
Its impact was felt by every Indian citizen. Nearly 86% of currency in
circulation was withdrawn, replacing a bulk of it.
Nevertheless, the government has estimated that suspicious transactions was in
the range of ₹1.6-1.7 lakh crore. Countering terrorism was another objective of
demonitization which was successfully achieved.

Christmas Eve is the day Riddhi Rao,6-B
Full of lights when everyone’s gay.
Christmas trees are decorated with light,
Which will never ever lose its bright.
People sing carols of Jesus and Mary
Singing happily and gaily, not tired and weary.
The children try not to be bad,
as, if they do so, Santa will be sad.
The Christmas colours blue, green and red
are seen by Santa as he said,
‘Ho! Ho! Ho!’ do not shed tears
as I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
The Day We Went to Lalbagh
On the 6th of September, we went to Lalbagh. While we were on our way, we
had some snacks in the bus and even slept for a couple of minutes. We finally
reached Lalbagh. It looked very beautiful, right from the entrance. As we
walked, we saw many beautiful flowers and a big fountain. I was so happy to
see that. We next moved towards the glass house and saw many varieties of
flowers. After we saw the flowers, we went to a perfect place which had a
waterfall and a beautiful lake. We also saw two or three water snakes fighting
for a fish. We walked some more and reached the exit. It was time for us to
board the bus and return. It was indeed the best of all trips.

My Favourite Animal
The dog is my favourite animal. I like dogs because they guard our houses. Baby
dogs are called pups and they look very cute. Many kids ask their parents for a
puppy as a pet. I wish to have one too. I love to play with dogs. It is a very
clever animal and is useful in catching thieves. It runs very fast, barks loudly
and attacks strangers.

EN FORME , LE JOUR J
Pour être en forme le jour de son examen , il faut respecter, tout au long de
l’année , certaines regales simples.
Manger équilibré et régulièrement
Manger de tout-sans excès-est la bonne règle pour rester en bonne santé.Sauter
des repas , boire du café pour gagner des heures sur son temps de sommeil
n’ont pas de repercussions immediate .Mais au bout d’une semaine ou de quinze
jours , vous vous sentirez considérablement affaibli.
Évitez les bonbons et les patisseries.Fruits et legumes (meme en conserve) en
revanche sont indispensables à un bon équilibre.Consommez avec prudence le
café , le thé et matières grasses. Le jour de l’examen , n’oubliez pas de prendre
un bon petit déjeuner .
Prenez le temps de vous détendre
Il est très important de savoir se détendre , surtout en période de stress.
Essayez de vous detacher de votre travail en écoutant de la musique , en
regardant la télé ou en vous absorantdans un passé temps .Le sport est un
excellent moyen de vous rafraîchir. Ilest surtout important de prendre le temps
de vous relaxer avant de vous coucher .
Évitez la panique
Si vous voous sentez de plus en plus inquiet, essayez d’en identifier la cause et
parlez-en à quelqu’un d’autre , par exemple un adulte ou un professeur . Faites
des exercices de respiration – relaxes –vous la figure et les épaules et respirez
longuement et profondément. Essayez de garder les choses en perspective –
après tout,la vie est plus importante que les examens.
Sreepriya.D, 9– A
Translation : To keep oneself in good form on the day of exam, it is necessary to
respect certain simple rules throughout the year.
EAT BALANCED FOOD REGULARLY- To eat everything – not in excess- is a good

of immediate impact. But at the end of a week or at the end of fifteen days ,you
feel considerably weak. Avoid sweets and cakes. Consume coffee ,tea and fats
with caution. On the day of the exam , don’t forget to take a good breakfast.
TAKE TIME TO RELAX– It is important to know to relax especially during the
time of stress. Try to detach from your work by listening to music, by watching
television, or by getting into your hobbies. Sports is an excellent way to refresh
yourself. It is important to take time to relax yourselves, before sleeping.
AVOID PANICKING- If you feel a lot of stress, try to identify the cause and speak
to others, for example an adult or a professer . Meditate – relax your body and
shoulders and respire deeply for a long time. Try to keep matters in perspective –
after all, life is more important than exams.
Think Out Loud

I love balloons a lot. There were colourful balloons on all my birthdays. I
enjoy blowing them. I love to play with them, but feel bad when they burst.
My parents make mini balloons out of the
burst pieces. I feel happy again when I rub
them over my palm. They make funny sounds.
Do you also love balloons?

When I Wake Up in the Morning
When I wake up in the morning:
I hear the nightingale,
I wish- in the sea, I would sail.
The tall trees hum softly in the sky,
Many birds make a group and happily fly.
When I wake up early in the morning:
I go for a morning walk,
And I refuse to talk.
To enjoy the beautiful breeze,
How they dance - I see the trees.
When I wake up early in the morning:
How lovely the sunrise will be,
In this cool weather, drinking tea
Will be the best idea ever,
And we will miss the lovely scene forever.

My Favourite Book
My favourite book is my new
3D Adventure Princess book. I
love it because all the pictures
have three dimensions. This
means I can peep into a castle
window and see the things in
the princess’s room. The best
page is at the end where the
princess rides away in her pink
I have a cycle. It is pink in colour. I got it as a gift on
my birthday. My cycle has flowers all over it. I ride
my cycle everyday. I carry my water bottle and toys in
the basket of my cycle. I clean my cycle every week. I
like my cycle very much. I give my cycle to my friends
sometimes. My friends and I ride together.
Hanshika. B.R, I-B
I have a little something,
It never talks,
But always stalks.
Yes, my shadow’s really odd.
They say it’s creepy.
But it’s really just naughty.
It can poke fun at anyone,
But cowers with fright
All throughout a fight.
I don’t mean to be rude.
But it’s black from head to toe.
It lies on its back, on the floor
And sticks to the back of my toes.
I try to see it completely,
But when I freeze, it freezes too.
Just staring at something out of sight,
It stares and stares,
And stares and stares,
And jumps back to life whenever I move.
Akhil. N, 6 -A
